 What is your suggestion for cold conditioning from here? Should I rack to secondary and chill to 50 for a couple weeks?
Thanks for your help

A couple of questions I have been trying to ferment this at around 58 degrees with a swamp cooler and ice bottles. I dosed off one night without changing the bottles and over night it shot up to 68 (major blowout). This was on day 3 of fermentation. Other than that spike I've kept it at 54-60 for 10 days. will that one spike hurt me. I've never used this yeast before, I still have a full krausen and some bubbling after 10 days. How long can it go, and will the krausen ever fall?

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / SA Summer Ale

Need some critique if you please.
I decided to make a Kinda Sorta SA Summer Ale loosely based on some recipe s I've seen on line. I could not wait of course and chilled a bottle after only 5 days conditioning. Of course the carbonation was a little low, but what concerned me was that the taste was a little watery. Here's what I did let me know what you think. I'm learning, and it will be taken gladly whatever you say.

General Homebrew Discussion / Broken Hydrometer
« on: June 01, 2010, 07:37:15 PM »
I brewed an Amercan Wheat yesterday, can't wait to try it. After I pulled my sample for the Hydrometer jar I pitched the yeast, areated, put the airlock on, and  for the 3rd time I broke my Hydrometer taking it out of the package. I'm making a habit out of this.
There is not a local shop near me, and it will be Friday before I can get a new one. My question is will my sample still be good to get an OG on Friday, since I have it refrigerated and have not pitched the yeast can I still get decent reading after 4 days?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the explanation. I had assumed from reading that it was primarily based on OG.  I actally enjoy making a starter. Now it sounds like I can make one on most every batch.
Thanks again,

I am making an American Wheat Hybrid this weekend. OG should be 1.055. Is there any need to make a starter at this OG?

That is sweet. Where did you get the SS print vinyl?

I Chilled one for a couple of days after 10 days conditioning. A little low on carbonation but good tatse.  I'll check again in a week. The downside I've got another cloudy beer. This is killing me. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

I am conditioning an IIPA at 72???. It has been bottled for 10 days. I put one in the fridge this morning to chill down for a sample tonite.  Are you saying I should not let the conditioning go any farther at this temp?
